This novella had an interesting premise. Very rich people pay to be “injected” into synthetic bodies after death. They are sort of like advanced robots with real blood running in their veins, along with memories of their past lives. This story is about synthetic #1001, who goes against her “programming” and gets caught up with someone she knew from her past life.
Caleb is the captain of the ship she ends up on and Fran is his pilot and second-in-command. There was a lot of fun sci-fi action, but for some reason, I couldn’t really get into the characters or story. A lot of it felt like setup and background, so maybe the second book will get more into a meatier adventure? I feel somewhat interested in finding out what happens next. I liked it, but didn’t love it.

I received a copy of this from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
